 Massage Therapy

Massage is one of the most ancient forms of healing.

There are thousands of types of massage; some of these have been around for thousands of years. Swedish massage is my base technique for the treatments I give. I have been certified in various healing modalities that include Neuro-Muscular rehabilitation, Chinese bodywork and acupressure.  The best massage for stress is a combination of the Swedish massage, coupled with deep tissue or therapeutic massage. Why? Because this is kind of massage that relieves your pain and makes you float and drift as well as soothes and comforts. Deep tissue and therapeutic massages do not have to be all about digging in and pummeling. A great Swedish massage has soothing rhythmic and slow massage strokes. There should be no discomfort at any time. A calm and centered massage therapist is one who reflects a comforting essence and can thus deliver the desired affect.

When a specific muscle group is injured or contracted, other muscles surrounding the affected area also brace in response to the injury or contraction. Massage helps to improve blood circulation, decrease pain and inflammation, helps to relax the muscles, and makes you feel better.

Foot Baths

The Aqua-Chi Ionic Foot Bath is a revolutionary hydro-therapy device that combines the life-giving properties of water with a specialized bio-electric charge, which enhances and amplifies the body’s ability to heal itself. Hence, the name Aqua Chi.

The bio-charge produced by the Aqua Chi Foot Bath (commonly called a detox foot bath) resonates throughout the water at a frequency specific to each individual taking a treatment. The negative ions created during a session are similar to those found in hot springs and other naturally charged water sources known to be beneficial to the body. The energized water helps to re-balance the body’s energy by permeating and realigning an individual’s energy. Many of the benefits of the foot spa can be attributed to the re-balancing of these energy meridians.

The bio-charge produced by the ion energy spa can effectively be used for a wide range of conditions*, serving as a non-invasive and relaxing wellness treatment. Some of the best results reported have been with: detoxification, reduced inflammation and recovery time, improved liver, kidney and colon function, as well as improved sleeping patterns. Immediately after a session it is typical to feel relaxed and have heightened mental clarity. However, users report that it is the cumulative effect of the sessions which are the most dramatic, providing a greater long-term benefit. Because the Aqua-Chi machine increases the energy level in the cell membrane, immune function may be substantially enhanced.
The system is designed to operate with water because water is the basis of all biological function. There are many different types of cells in the body and they all have a number of things in common. They all need water for hydration AND energy to perform their designated tasks. With the depletion of either water OR energy, the cells are deprived and poor health can result.

The system works through the medium of water by making available extra energy that the living cell can utilize. There are many water sources around the world that are reported as having invigorating effects on the body when bathed in. These waters are naturally charged and give up some of their charge to the body on contact. This is the fundamental process utilized by the Aqua Chi; the transference of energy through water.

Ear Candling

Ear candling is an ancient technique that has been around for thousands of years. Many think it started with the ancient Egyptians, who searched for reeds in the Nile River so they could clean and dry out their ears. Because of the success of this technique, word of the benefits of ear candling spread. Now the use of candling is common place across the globe.
Consider a hollow candle that can eliminate inches of impacted earwax, Candida infections and fungus. A candle that could be an alternative to surgery. A candle that has the power to improve and return hearing, improve physical balance, as well as cleanse the sinus cavities, the lymphatic system and release toxins left by medications, eliminating ear pains and promoting healthier ears.
